Harry, 33 from London is running an incredible 33 marathons this year to raise money to support The Vitiligo Society and Diabetes UK
The Vitiligo Society, like many charities, relies on the public for it’s support. Fundraising volunteers, along with our members, are what enable the Society to support community & research, educate and raise awareness about vitiligo.
Harry shared with us why he had chosen to undertake such a huge challenge:
2022 will be 30 years since I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and 3 years since I was diagnosed with vitiligo. To commemorate the milestone, I’ve taken up the challenge to raise money for Diabetes UK and The Vitiligo Society by running 33 Marathons throughout the year (that’s 2 to 3 marathons a month!)
Both charities are fantastic in educating the public and supporting people like myself in managing and living with the condition. My aim is to raise equal amount of funds between both charities by my last run on 31st Dec 2022.
